It may be interesting to note what the papers in San Francisco are saying of the ball players in their midst. Below may be found a few extracts from the coast papers:Latham has his mother with him, bringing her all the way from Lynn, Mass.Speaking of Latham, Curt Welch says: "You'll have to pour molten metal down his throat to shut him up..."Doc Bushong is here. The celebrated catcher is considered the most scientific man in his line. He coaches his pitcher, signaling him how to throw the ball, and was the direct cause of the developing of many a colt.
